Franzia Chardonnay, Sweet, Vintner Select
Since 1906. The world's most popular wine. A new beginning - Teresa Franzia, my grandmother, planted her first vineyard along the road to Yosemite in 1906. Her family survived Prohibition by selling these grapes to home winemakers back east. When Prohibition ended, my father and his six brothers and sisters rebuilt the winery brick by brick, barrel by barrel - everyone pitched in. After the war, my uncle's new advertising slogan, make friends with Franzia, introduced a new generation to wine. As we enter our second century of winemaking, we strive to uphold Teresa's legacy of quality, freshness and value. Not just by winning competitions around the world but more importantly by helping to bring the enjoyment of good wine to your home each night. The worlds most popular wine is also the world's most cost and carbon efficient wine. We are proud of what we are doing and we plan to do more. Smaller carbon footprint - 50% more carbon efficient than 750 ml glass bottles. Lighter than heavy glass bottles, Franzia wine taps require fewer trucks to deliver the same amount of wine resulting in less emissions, less pollution, less cost and less greenhouse gases. Significantly less packaging waste. Franzia wine taps dramatically reduce the environmental burden of excess packaging by creating 85% less waste than traditional glass. Fresh taste: this award-winning wine stays fresh to the last glass, even after the package has been opened, because Franzia's patented pour spout and unique inner pouch prevent the oxidation that occurs in half empty wine-in-bottles. Packed by Franzia Vineyards, Ripon and Cutler, CA.
